He’s been photographing cats way before they took over the internet – but Steve Winter confesses to being a ‘dog lover’ at home. It might be a case of leaving work at work. Winter has been on assignment for National Geographic for 25 years, braving extreme conditions to snap shots of jaguars, tigers and other big cats.This month, Winter’s in town for the National Geographic Live sessions. He’s giving a talk, entitled ‘My Nine Lives’, and sharing his tales from off the beaten path, like when he was being charged at by rhinos or getting trapped in quicksand. Y’know, the usual work woes. We put on our field hat and had a chat with the man.
